ok ,, ,,hey folks.. for those who are still trying to figure out.. ,there is still hope- sahara error'' and in such..cases...
( i will keep it short, so then you can go and experiment )

First
''i came across to -this video
''
(he copies rom files under ''QFIL/bin or something.. in his case)
- trying this method, gaved me hope.. i actually got some different kind of installation error of some kind. instead of -sahara error.

Next ''searching.. i came to a post where there is ''also'' ''an explanation about how QPST have to be installed and in which directory, in which partititon of you PC''...
-boommm...

arpit_nnd's post:​


read-- it- experiment ...

note -
/in my case- i haven't succeded with flashing through a firmware only.. i flashed it.. i wasn't able to boot.. but i was able to go into fastboot so then i installed matching twrp version with my device (redmi note 8) by ADB commands.. then surprisingly ..hah'' i was in TWRP recovery mode, -it was surprising, because.. well i wasn't attempting to boot into recovery by pressing power+volume up buttons.. just pressing power button.. so from there... i installed some custom rom sdcard-..and moving on my life ..

if you still stuck, this is what i did,
i downloaded the fastboot rom that i want to flash
then i opened the device back cover and located the pin for the edl mode and then i unplugged the battary
so after this i install qpst v2.7.480 and then go to the folder of installation and locate qfil, and if you have used another qfil before this you need to renter the information even if it is entered it solved my problem, and you will need the QDLoaderHS_USB_Driver
and then do as thisView attachment 5191919
before this step make sure you have replaced the file with the one in the extracted rom.
and then plug your phone and short the two pins using a wire or anything else which will make your device enter edl mode
and then hit the download button and hopefully the download will start, after all this you should have a working phone.
You saved my life ! Thank you so much bro!

    FIRST OF ALL, THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR ALL OF YOU HERE

    my redmi note 8 ginkgo come back from the dead after 10 hours phone dead and wandering thru internet and many forum ( english only )

    iam on windows 10 64 bit,, using usb 2.0 port, original xiaomi usb cable
    at this point any flashing guide i already do, nothing work, except i have authorize account, which i dont have.

    edit : My board number is 1.29

    here is exactly what iam doing

    1.download latest QPST from here
    (at the time, iam using Version v2.7.480

    2.install and finish it.

    3.iam using this rom
    ginkgo_global_images_V11.0.12.0.PCOMIXM_20201119.0000.00_9.0_global
    from here :


    4. download the prog_emmc_firehorse from here
    this one is the one posted by RealYoti from 2nd page.

    ok, from here, all the file necessary is ready

    5. copy / move the prog_emmc_firehorse that you download to the FASTBOOT ROM location, put inside "images" folder, replace the original.


    6. now the Phone , remove back cover, remove the battery connector, sort test point to edl mode

    7. connect the device until it recognized by the PC as 9008 ( if hard to recognize, press power button about 10 second and repeat shorting the test poin pin )

    8. now, open the QFIL.exe,in my case :
    C/Program Files(x86)/Qualcomm/QPST/bin/

    CONFIGURATION

    a. Select Build Type : Flat Build
    b. Select Programmer : ( Locate to prog_emmc_firehorse inside the firmware images folder )
    c. LoadXML : RawProgram > rawprogram0.xml // Patch > patch0.xml
    d. look at top right, SelectPort, make sure its detected ( just to make sure its connected and detected )

    now everything set, hit that Blue Download button, if the blue bar is loading, then everything is working and flashing, just wait until it finish and says success.
    after success, just remove the usb, put back the battery port, and hold power, your phone should back alive.

    sorry if there is misspell and miswrite.
    i hope someone find this usefull, thank you again for everyone here.
